Day 0:

An overnight journey from Chennai to our camping site in Kothagiri. A brief intro about the treks and things to do and don’t will be given along with the few icebreaking sessions to make everyone in the group to bond with each other. As it is said simple dinner makes the travel delightful we encourage everyone to have a simple dinner for the journey night.

Day 1:

The morning begins with the cup of tea prepared by the local Baduga community along with the breakfast.Then we start our first trek of the day to the Kallar valley. Though the trek is easy, the ridge walk on the rock and the views from the Kallarviewpoint makes the trek interesting.
Once we reach the bottom, a natural pond is waiting for us just like your private pool to relax. At the end of our trek, a well-prepared lunch will be served along with some time to rest and relax. In the eve, after tea, we start our another trek to our nearby hill to enrich the views from the top. The day will end with dinner, campfire with lots of games and other related activities.

Day 2:

Trek to Catherine falls is must if you are in kothagiri. After our usual morning hiccups, we start our trek to Catherine falls, the trail lead us through the tea plantation, local villages, and you may see few bisons on our way. Long trail  will make you believe it’s all totally worth it. Such is the beauty of the falls. The Catherine falls is a double cascaded falls with lots of space and freezing cold water, you may never want to come back to Chennai. After lunch we start back to Chennai.
